  1. Treating PFAS water contamination with cold plasma

    University of Michigan researchers are developing better plasma technology that can destroy PFAS compounds

    The post Treating PFAS water contamination with cold plasma appeared first on Engineering Research News.

  2. NIST finalists for post-quantum security standards include research results developed by Prof. Chris Peikert

    A new secure code is needed to protect private information from the power of quantum computing.

  3. “Hiding” network latency for fast memory in data centers

    A new system called Leap earned a Best Paper award at USENIX ATC ‘20 for producing remote memory access speed on par with local machines over data center networks.

  4. Baris Kasikci earns CAREER Award to automatically improve software quality with data from everyday program use

    Kasikci will sift through the byproducts of hundreds of millions of common program executions to determine how this data can automate some key steps in bug finding and fixing.

  5. New collaboration promises greater innovation in medical device security

    The two organizations will connect their membership and partner networks to work on advancing security for life-saving devices.

  6. Enabling fairer data clusters for machine learning

    Their findings reduce average job completion time by up to 95% when the system load is high, while treating every job fairly.

  7. Professors Jay Guo and Zetian Mi awarded MTRAC funding for research in autonomous and green vehicles

    Guo is working to boost the visibility of autonomous cars for improved safety, and Mi is building a prototype solar hydrogen production system that could out-compete electric cars.

  8. Space motor helps make robotic prosthetic leg more comfortable and extends battery life

    Getting rid of some gears enabled a free-swinging knee, regenerative braking and brought the noise level down from vacuum cleaner to fridge.

  9. Improving cancer and disease treatments by understanding electromagnetic communication among biological cells

    Prof. Kamal Sarabandi and ECE PhD student Navid Barani won a best paper award for their research on how biological cells may use electromagnetic signal transmission to communicate.

  10. Twisting magnetic fields for extreme plasma compression

    When magnetic walls are closing in, wily plasma slips out between magnetic field lines. A Michigan-led team pioneered a way to keep more plasma contained.
